Tom Clancy, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Ryan novels--including his latest blockbusters Command Authority and Threat Vector--delivers an electrifying tale of international conflict.

Using the latest advancements in military technology, the world's superpowers battle it out on land, sea, and air for the ultimate global control.

A chillingly authentic vision of modern war, Red Storm Rising is as powerful as it is ambitious.

It's a story you will never forget.

Hard hitting. Suspenseful.

And frighteningly real.

Review: Red Storm Rising

Red Storm Rising was one of the best books I've read in years. RSR is about the Third World War between the US and the USSR. It is sparked by a lack of fuel and grain from the russians who go to war ... Read full review

User Review  - Taylor - Goodreads

This is not a great book. Clancy, as a writer, is pretty awful. His characters are almost dimensionless, they are so thin. Anything having to do with human relations is about as ham-fisted as anything ... Read full review

About the author (1987)

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October—the first of the phenomenally successful Jack Ryan novels—sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.
